Bringing Riverview to You

Saint Ignatius’ College, Riverview was established in 1880 as a boarding school, and opened with just 12 pupils. Since then, it has grown into a tight-knit community of boys, comprising both Boarders and Day Students.

The boarding community has always been a vibrant and central part of the College. We understand that to many, Riverview is not just a school, but a home.

For those who are considering enrolling their sons to our care, we are pleased to commit our time, resources and energy to meet you where you are. Come and join our leadership team at these events:

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Saint Ignatius’ College, Riverview, a Catholic school in the Jesuit tradition in Sydney, New South Wales. Riverview is a boys school for students in Years 5 to 12. Situated on the north shore of Sydney, the College has delivered quality education to both local and boarding students since 1880.

The Society of Jesus was founded by Saint Ignatius of Loyola and canonically approved as an order by Pope Paul III in 1540. The first school opened by the Society was in Messina in Sicily in 1548, which was followed by a rapid growth of schools throughout Europe and then across the world. Now established in over 80 countries, the Jesuits educate approximately 2.5 million students throughout the world. Jesuits first came to Sydney in 1878 to establish schools on the North Shore of the city.

An Irish Jesuit, Fr Joseph Dalton SJ, founded Saint Ignatius’ Riverview and gave birth to a school that has become one of the most prominent in New South Wales and throughout the nation. Contemporary Ignatian educators share and continue Saint Ignatius’ dream of transforming the lives of young people, particularly those who suffer marginalisation and adversity, by offering them a holistic education that strives for excellence in all things. In traditional Jesuit terminology, cura personalis aims to provide care and support for each student as a unique and gifted young person. The ideal for Ignatian graduates is that they become men of ‘competence, conscience, compassion and commitment’ who aim to serve others to benefit the common good. Should you decide that Saint Ignatius’ College Riverview is the school best suited to nurture your son in a caring Christian environment, I welcome you and look forward to the possibility of a long and fruitful association.
